. they are making beau coup money from these corporations. how can we change them? >> that's difficult. i think we have to introduce some protective factors. better parenting. more supportive home environments. those sort of things. >> bill: you can't do that. you can't legislate good parenting there are a lot of derelict parents and don't care as they use these video games as babysitters because kids will spend hours on them and won't be annoying the parents. you know the drill. are you calling for the censorship of these games by the authorities? >> yeah, video games are very bad babysitters especially violent ones. while we don't let our children drink beer or smoke cigarettes and i think the first step is to make sure the games are age appropriate. so, for example, children under 13 shouldn't be playing games rated t for teen 13 and above and children under 17 shouldn't be playing games rated m for mature players 17 and older. that's a first step to pay attention to those. >> bill: responsible parents will do that. irresponsible parents will not. that's always the problem. we also have a decli

cars few in the industry have ever seen. phil lebeau is in chicago. i guess essentially, phil, the europeans are taking a leap out of the americans' book. they used to scoff that the american automakers would offer. now it's par for the course. >> especially in december. it used to be lexus, but mercedes-benz was looking for offers in november. this is an increase compared to october, up 42% for bmw, 26% for mercedes, lexus up 3%. what's going on here? let's start with bmw. their holiday deals now include up to five months of no payments. that's the kind of stuff you used to hear from chevy or from ford. by the way, bmw sales surged 45% last month. mercedes leads bmw year-to-date by just under 1,900 vehicles. it last led the u.s. luxury sales in '99. it really wants the title again. at the core of what's happening between these two german automakers, they need strong sufficient sales to offset the weakness they're seeing in europe. that's why their production has been ramped up here at their facilities in the u.s. bmw announced it's on pace to set global sales of more than 1.7

're jump to either side of you. how do you get those two parties to come up with some sort of agreement that sounds exactly like what you two are talking about? >> i actually think that at the end of the day, we are very close to putting together the grand bargain. because if you think about it, kicking this can down the road doesn't work. why doesn't it work? because early next year we're going to have to have a debt limit extension. can you imagine what that will be like absent the grand bargain being reached now? we'll be right back to task. we will be right back to putting markets at risk. right back to partisan divide. we will be right back to gridlock. so, we can avoid all that. it's right before us. and it's not that hard. that's what i think has been missing. >> let me tell you, any deal we're at a position right now in the united states. we can talk china. europe's been left behind. the only thing that's keeping us back is any deal. just get
